John Huffman, witnessed the WILL G:250 of Theophilus Hughes: G:250, 1802/04. This may indicate that John was s/o John Huffman & Margaret Hufffman of Loudoun Co., VA. If so John Huffman may have been John Huffman, Jr. who m., b. 21 Jan 1775, Bedford Co., PA who m. Sarah Ann Goodman/Godwin of Kent Co., DE about 1796 possibly the dau. of Thomas & Maria Goodwin. Maria d. testate 1829 in Loudoun Co. WILL S:67, 1829. Heirs named: Thomas, husband dec'd.; William Goodman Jackson, son of Thomas; Rev Thomas Jackson, EXOR; Mary Congreve Jackson, d/o Thomas.
Thomas Jackson was a witness to the WILL of William Fox, Sr. who d. testate 1775. A William Jackson is named in the WILL of William Jackson, E:104, 1782/1795 as a son.
My notes show Phoebe Ann Goff as wife #1 of John Huffman, Jr. A James Goff witnessed the will Ann Stevens wwho d. 1772 - no other Goff listings.
The heirs of John Huffman, D:252, 1792 include Margaret, wife and 3 sons: Phillip, Peter and Henry. Phillip inherited the plantation subject to life maintenance for Margaret.
This expounded theory of relationship is subject to proof. John & Huffman are my G5 Grandparents as their daughter m. Able Davis s/o Benjamin & Hannah Davis of Loudoun Co. Proof may rest on finding a m. record of Marys' m. to Able Davis. Abel & Mary were m. either in Loudoun Co or in Monongalia Co before 1790. Mary's sister Elizabeth m. William Smith who may be rleated to William Smith of Loudoun Co. A Phillip Huffman thought to be brother of Mary resided for a time in Monongalia Co. During this time Phillip encountered a debt problem causing his incarceration. He was released on bail posted by John C. Payne, Feb 29 1808 who asked the Court ro release him from the obligation due to anticipated injury. Payne returned Phillip to jail. Soon thereafter Abel Davis supplied bail bond and Phillip was released. The unpaid debt was owed to William Hull/Hill. Eventually suit was filed by assignees and judgment was rendered against Abel Davis who paid same. To me this indicates Phillip Huffman was the brother of Mary and Able provided bond through her urging in disregard to underwriting consideration.
